Meet Luke Montgomery, aka The Artist Formerly Known As Luke Sissyfag, the man behind the latest and perhaps most vulgar attacks on GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump yet.
Montgomery is the founder and treasurer of a new Democrat-aligned political action committee called Deport Racism who made headlines this week for his latest SHOCKING!!! Activism, including a video showing grinning children raising their middle fingers to the camera and saying “Fuck you, racist fuck!!!” and an offer to pay $5,000 to anyone for disrupting the taping of Saturday Night Live when Donald Trump is the host this weekend. Montgomery is also the campaign director for a pro-Hillary Clinton PAC active during the summer of 2015 called “BillForFirstLady2016.com.”
At the age of about five years old, most children learn that they can get attention by saying obscene words. While most kids outgrow this phase, Mr. Montgomery has a made of career as a liberal artist and activist by employing this same SHOCKING!!! technique, over and over, in a stream of videos, direct actions, and merchandise over the past two decades. His creative work—which often involves the use of children—for causes like homosexual rights, animal rights, girls’ rights, transgender rights, and illegal aliens’ rights has grabbed him headlines and eyeballs since he started working as a community organizer in the early 1990s. In 1993, Montgomery changed his name to “Luke Sissyfag” for two years, which brought him worldwide attention.
Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh was one of the people who noticed. Here’s Limbaugh discussing some of Montgomery’s activism in 2007:
CALLER: (do ) you remember Luke Sissyfag?
RUSH: Oh, yeah. Who could forget Luke Sissyfag?
CALLER: Whatever happened to him?
RUSH: Luke Sissyfag right now is an animal rights activist. He’s working for some nonprofit thing. In the nineties, he was working for some place called Last Chance for Animals. His real name is Luke Montgomery, but he called himself “Luke Sissyfag.” He was a member of ACT-UP, the militant AIDS group.
RUSH: I think it was December 1st, 1993, World AIDS Day, where we got to know him. He attended a speech in Washington that Clinton was marking the occasion, and Luke Sissyfag interrupted the speech and shouted at the president he wasn’t taking enough action against AIDS. And, you know, he made statements that were highly critical of the gay community, following a tradition of AIDS activists set by the likes of Larry Kramer and so forth. He actually ended up agreeing with me somewhere publicly, that I said the problem with AIDS is that the Democrats have politicized that.
CALLER: That’s right.
RUSH: That the liberals have politicized that, and he actually agreed with me. Luke Sissyfag agreed with Rush Limbaugh.
According to documents filed with the Federal Election Commission, Montgomery’s newest Deport Racism PAC filed paperwork on September 4th this year, although the DeportRacism.com name registered in April.
The Artistry of Luke Montgomery: A Retrospective
A look the oeuvre of The Artist Formerly Known As Sissyfag shows that he’s churned out other SHOCKING!!! videos of children who have been coached to repeat scripted curse words to create awkward videos that leftists seem to enjoy–although it’s worth noting the original got about 8x more views than the sequel, which shows girls with black eyes and broken arms to oppose domestic violence:
Another video has children cursing to protest the Confederate Flag:
Sometimes, Mr. Montgomery puts the F-Bombs in the mouths of adults as well as children. Montgomery attacks religion in both videos:
In an attempt to cash in on Black Lives Matter, Montgomery directed a video with black children from Ferguson, Missouri mocking and lecturing white people on racism. Dedicated to Michael Brown, the black teenager who was shot after assaulting a store clerk and a police officer, the video is essentially an ad to sell T-Shirts, with $5 from each sale going to an anti-racist group.
The Twitter feed for Montgomery’s commercial T-Shirt sales venture FCKH8 features memes of both President Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, and pop culture figures like comedians Sarah Silverman and Senator Chuck Schumer ’s cousin Amy Schumer. The themes of the shirts are primarily pro-abortion, gender equality, and pro-homosexual and transgender acceptance, with slogans such as “Some Kids Are Gay That’s Ok” and “This Is What A Feminist Looks Like.”

Another theme that is anti-bullying but for the irony of hate and bullying against Republicans like Ben Carson and Donald Trump, all with The Artist Formerly Known As Sissyfag’s trademark repetitious and SHOCKING!!! use of curse words and middle fingers.

To go along with the anti-Trump DeportRacism video, the Artist Formerly Known As Sissyfag also uses his FCKH8 Twitter feed to attack GOP presidential frontrunner Dr. Ben Carson, unshockingly ironic for a site supposedly against “H8” and bullying.

Andrew Breitbart used to warn people, “This is not your fathers’ Democrat party.” Devoid of ideas, bereft of successful policies, and with no moral basement whatsoever, the Democrats have been reduced to the part of stunt politics, relying on the shock and awe tactics of activists like Black Lives Matter and artists like Luke Montgomery.
